The bus only goes by our donation center every hour. When I'm without a car, as I am now, it's really inconvenient. And I am inclined, if I have missed the bus, to just start walking downtown--it's probably about a mile and a half to the transit center. There are other bus lines which have stops between downtown and the donation center, but I never think, "Oh, I'll walk six blocks and catch the 13 instead." It's always the whole walk, and I'm concerned about passing out, though I never have.
My sister did once, though. We were in high school, and they had a Halloween blood drive. It was her senior year, the first time she was eligible to donate. I was a freshman. People came running up to me to tell me that she'd passed out. She had dressed as a vampire that day . . . .
"Now everyone was giving her that kind of look UFOlogists get when they suddenly say, 'Hey, if you shade your eyes you can see it is just a flock of geese after all.'"
"You can't erase icing."
"I can't believe it doesn't work! I found it on the internet, man!"
